Test first, register for classes next.
NSCC's Center for Alternative Studies and Education Testing is the first stop for
incoming NSCC students. Once you've been accepted to the College, you must take your Accuplacer tests before you register for classes to determine which classes are right for you. Our
services are in compliance with the Professional Standards and Guidelines of the NCTA
(National College Testing Association).
For students with military experience or prior learning, you may have already earned credit that you can apply to your academic program.
